The Rule of Four by Ian Caldwell & Dustin Thomason

At this book club, we will discuss The Rule of Four by Ian Caldwell and Dustin Thomason. On the eve of graduation, two friends are a hairsbreadth from solving the mysteries of the Hypnerotomachia Poliphili, a Renaissance text that has baffled scholars for centuries. But when a longtime student of the book is murdered just hours later, a chilling cycle of deaths and revelations begins.

The book club will begin with a presentation on the Hypnerotomachia Poliphili, the real-life book that inspired The Rule of Four, followed by a discussion of the novel.

Free and open to all, but registration is required.
